Island Air and Bombardier announced today that the airline has placed an order for two Q400 NextGens, with an option for four more. Delivery of the first two models is expected in December 2014.

Presently, Island Air has five ATR72-212s, but those were acquired before Larry Ellison purchased the airline.
This will be the airline's second time with the Q400 airframe. N539DS was with Island Air for a little over six months in 2006.
